I think I'll stick with AIO for time being, I rather my PC be maintenance free, then having to worry if I have to change the water in the system.
I understand where you're coming from. This will be my last watercooled build.....hopefully. After doing this for a few years, I'm just ready to hang it up and stick to more traditional builds. Aside from the work and maintenance that goes into watercooling, I cringe at the amount of money I've invested in these types of builds over the years, money that could have been spent on higher end components like latest gen CPUs and better GPU setups.
But it has been fun.
